County Coronet

This was part of a project swap with Constance and because I really adore the recipient.

Coronet for Countess Marguerite inghean Lachlainn incorporating her personal heraldry.

This coronet was made from a 1.5 inch veg tan leather strap from Tandy Leathers.  I hand cut the crenelations, hand dyed it, and painted it using Liquitex acrylic paints.  Liquitex is my tried and true paint of choice for painting Knight of the Eternal Flame belts in the Realms larp so I thought it would hold up well here.  It's sealed using NeatLaq matte sealant.

For a personal touch we had Edward cut two leather ties (one white and one black as a personal inside joke) since this was an open back/adjustable coronet.

All in all, I'm very happy with it.

  1. Heck yeah Liquitex for strap leather. It's what Kugen told me to use, and I'm glad it keeps getting passed down.
